  1. ive had this happen before. take the cap off the top of the carb. i bet the slide is jammed wide open and has smashed the spring flat so its binding against itself. pull the slide out and the spring should open back up with some encouragement takes about 5 min to fix
  2. That may be the best looking bike I've ever seen That may be the best looking bike I've ever seen
  3. awesome advice guys. If i was racing still id probably go 250f. I'm going to keep the 2 stroke. Thanks!
  4. just like the title says, what are your opinions, both bikes are clean. like really clean. the yz250 is mine, another dude wants to trade the 250f.......... ive ridden the 250fs a lot and i really like them..... it would be 90% trail bike
  5. supercross

    ive been thinking about this for a while. I like the idea of a restrictor plate as it is something that can be universally added. for example everyone's intake has to breathe through a 20mm diameter restricor, for the record that number was pulled out of thin air, i have no idea the proper size...... However i think there is a better and easier idea that will actually lead to some trickle down to the consumer market that could get the OEM's on board My idea.......... Rev limits in the 250f class and significant sound reduction in the 450 class 250f class limit the redline to 11.5k or 12k. This is currently being done in the MOTO3 class with great success. OEM's are still building impressively fast bikes that last a long time. In Moto3 the rev limit was introduced to increase longevity of the engines. this would be an added benefit for motocross along with taming the power. 450f class limit the sound, and throttle body diameter. smaller diameter throttle body will increase lowend power and decrease topend. restrictive exhaust will decrease power as well. To encourage exhaust companies to get on board and follow the rules a minimum exhaust weight rule could be put in place...... there could also be a spec ECU ala world superbike and MOTOGP. I think this is a fun thought experiment. what does everyone else think?
  6. its getting bad everywhere. the barrier to entry is very low with those things. I dont have an answer other than ride where they cant go or ride during the week if possible
  7. update- Just couldn't justify the money on something that wasn't all that fun......... Bought a Boosted Board V2+ instead. Some of the best money I've ever spent!!!!!!! Thanks for all the input guys. MTB just isn't for me
  8. pozo is the only legal place around there. You can ride in the river bed buts its technically not legal. pozo can be pretty fun when the weather is right. Just about everything around here is private property and has been for a LONG time
  9. 2-butoxyethanol i run a commercial ultrasonic cleaner in my boat shop, we do 10-20 carbs a week. we buy the cheap blue degreaser from smart and final works incredibly well and i really cheap. just make sure you change the fluid when it starts to loose its performance. trust me, it works incredibly well!

    wtf is up with the pick of the cop with his rifle in that dudes face?!?!?!?!
  11. that is pretty funny. sounds like a bunch of foreigners got lost behind some locked gates, a few of them ran out of gas and they all threw in the towel. lol. At least it wasnt because someone was hurt!
  12. i am definitely going to buy a used bike. New bikes are just outrageous in price
  13. I've been looking at that bike and its reviews a bunch, im strongly considering it. Thanks all the input!
  14. they run the 250 four strokes because of the rpm spread. when they dont need lots of power they can use the 250f's rpm to shift way less and hence go faster. There was an article on it in one of the past mags about kailub russell's bike. pretty interesting read.
  15. UPDATE #2- Took the Nomad out today again, rode the same area. BUT, this time i spent a bunch of time setting up the bike. loosened up the settings on the forks and shock, set sag etc. Had WAY more fun! I dont know if it was because the bike was working better or i was a little more comfortable on the trails but i had a blast. So, 3500 is the budget. still trading the nomad in for a 29er hardtail on monday or tuesday. Ill update with my revelations
